The song “Pagliuca” has three parts, with the first part written in 2004 after I’d read a news clipping sent to me by a good friend, about the world record for surface wind speed observed by man. Until recently, I’d forgotten all about it. While the song and its subsequent sequels do not directly address the article, the character was originally inspired by one of the story’s primary subjects, Salvatore Pagliuca. Enjoy the story.
We’re slowly getting buried. But here are some shovels…
*Download a new live album here, for free.
*Listen to a demo of “Sings Like a Priest” (which may end up on a soon-to-be-released collection) here.
*And more records coming this year, including I Sleep Alone, a follow-up cassette to Old Waves, and possibly another live set.
Hope to see you at the show tonight.

The new site is up, and a new album (called I Sleep Alone) is close to mixing. Most of it was recorded at Kettle Pot Tracks by Michael Batchelor, from June to December 2013.
